18 Authors Reveal 1 Book They'd Read If Earth Self-Destructed

Hi everyone! The Blogger Book Fair February 2013 is now on and I'm one of 50+ authors taking part. What's the Blogger Book Fair? It's like a blog hop. It's held every six months and showcases authors and their books. Click here for more information on participating blogs and giveaways.
To showcase some Blogger Book Fair authors, I asked them one simple question:
Planet Earth is about to self-destruct because it's sick and tired of the human race. All earthlings must evacuate and you can only take one book with you.
What book will you take?
NOTE: You can click on the book covers to go directly to its Amazon page.

Thomas Winship
(Author of Vaempires: Revolution)

I would take Fifty Shades of Grey, because I swore I'd only read it if hell froze over...and Earth self-destructing would be close enough for me.

Kelly Miller
(Author of Dead Like Me)

Sure, I could give a cute answer like Joy of Cooking, but what's the point in taking that since whatever new planet we land on probably won't have chocolate. Joy of Sex crossed my mind because I'm sure a lot of that will be done in the last few hours on earth, but in all seriousness, I'd have to take my Bible. It's the only book I've read more than once, the only book I go to on a daily basis.

Jason Andrew Bond
(Author of Hammerhead)

The Book of Five Rings by Miyamoto Musashi. The thoughts on physical conflict would be important in the new world, and the final chapter on the void would be critical to the mental focus and toughness needed during the stressful emigration. We'd have a kendo training space in the spaceship for exercise: ZERO G KENDO ANYONE? :)

Jen McConnel
(Author of The Burning of Isobel Key)

I'd take Diana Gabaldon's Outlander, because that's one book I love to read over and over again. As to the ones I'd leave behind, I'd just have to spend my time in outer space writing them down and telling new tales.

Alessandra Ebulu
(Author of Binding Ties)

I will take the book You Must Set Forth At Dawn by Wole Soyinka. This is because it's a book that made me laugh, made me cry, made me smile and made me reflect on issues. You really can't get any better than that.

Kyra Dune
(Author of Elfblood)
The Stand by Stephen King because Stephen King is my favorite author and it's a really good book.

Twitter: @KyraDune


Alexandra Allred
(Author of Damaged Goods)

Tough question. Nearly impossible to answer accurately but...The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot...a reminder to humans to try to get things right.

Twitter: @alexandraallred

Tammie Clarke Gibbs
(Author of Island of Secrets: A Time Travel, Gothic Romance)

The Bible, because it's the most comprehensive book ever written. It's a history book, guide book and in my opinion if that happened God had a hand in it anyway. :)

Twitter: @tammiegibbs

Andrea Buginsky
(Author of The Chosen)

If planet Earth were about to self-destruct, and I could only bring one book with me when I left, it would have to be The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn. That is my favorite of the series and has a great mix of fantasy, romance, family drama, action, and surprises. I love the characters, and can read them over and over again.

Dan O'Brien
(Author of Bitten)

Les Miserables by Victor Hugo.

Twitter: @AuthorDanOBrien

Sherry Soule
(Author of Beautifully Broken)

Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire. It's one of my favorite books. I love darker storylines and ones with dysfunctional characters. Abby and Travis are one of those couples that are drawn to each other despite the odds.

Twitter: @writersherry

Allison Blanchard (Author of Forget Me Not)

This may sound weird to some, but I would bring my Bible. I am a self-proclaimed Jesus freak and I would need to feed my spirit and continue to grow in my faith. Especially if I have to leave earth and run away from aliens. Yikes!

Twitter: @apblanchard

SJ Byrne
(Author of My Butterfly)

I'd take a journal because if I couldn't write I would slowly go insane. Of course I'd have to be extremely careful about what I wrote -- think on it long and hard before committing it to paper. Hmm novel concept that.

Twitter: @SJ__Byrne

Kirstin Pulioff
(Author of The Escape of Princess Madeline)

Hmmm...If I only get one, I have to stick with the Bible. That is the book that would get me through it all, with faith, love, and confidence. If I got another for fun -- Dr. Suess' The Lorax, a reminder for the future.

Twitter: @KirstinPulioff

Isabella Sinclair
(Author of OLLY)

It could only be Little Women. That book was the first real novel I ever read and I loved the story from beginning to end. Plus, it's a damn long book! =)


Jacob Donley
(Author of New Beginning)

I would take Lord of the Rings. Technically, Fellowship of the Ring, Two Towers and Return of the King were all one book to begin with, so I'd take the big version so I can read about Middle Earth all I want.

Twitter: @JacobDonley

Beck Sherman
(Author of Revamp)

"How To Survive If Planet Earth Is About To Self-Destruct Because It Is Sick And Tired Of The Human Race - FOR DUMMIES".

Twitter: @BeckSherman

Kayla Curry
(Author of Obsidian)

I would take The Ultimate Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams. I think this book would be perfect to help me survive in space and get a few laughs too. Plus, it's like five books in one, so I'd totally be cheating.
